Unplug the refrigerator and remove frozen food, shelving, light and back panel inside the freezer section to expose the cooling coils. The coils were completely iced over. Using a wet dry vacuum to discharge the air toward the coils quickly melted the ice. The trouble shooting section on your website described my problem and I bought both items which were the most common problem. Using the video(s) e-mailed to me when purchasing the parts provided great information regarding details for the repair. After replacing both parts the refrigerator is working great having spent just under $25.00.

Followed the video instructions with the help of a young man who worked on trailer hitches before and knew how to splice wires. Beware of splicing the wrong fan motor back into the assembly. . . . That happened here and we had to start the splicing all over again with the correct fan motor.

I followed the video provided by PartSelect, very helpful. I had to cut and splice 4 wires. The repair was successful. The replacement part was an exact duplicate of the original. I still notice the same sound but one tenth the volume. I hope the problem does not return. Many thanks to PartSelect for information to identify the problem and prompt shipping of the repair part.

After watching some videos on U tube on how to check the mother board, I did some checking and found out that all the voltages and resistances were OK, so I ordered the fan, the thermistor and a temperature sensor.I got the parts really quick, just a couple of days.After I got the parts I watched the videos suggested in the parts select web page, and I was able to install everything without problems.Now my fridge is working fine, with excellent cooling.

Ironically I did this today, as this email request came up asking how it went. I'm not a repairman, I'm a software engineer, and I can't thank this site enough for the step by step videos. With the video to help, this was a breeze, I was nervous as I had to empty all my freezer out onto the living room floor. Once that was done the repair took about 30 minutes. Thank you partselect!!!!! My second time doing business here, and I'll be coming back (well, if something breaks, so let's hope I don't have to).

Anyone can do this. I am a 70 year old woman. With a kitchen knife, I gently pushed up from the bottom of the old and broken light switch to disengage the plastic catch. Then I unplugged the old one and plugged in the new one. It was then a matter of sliding in the new light switch paying attention to which side was "up". It works perfectly.

The augur system had broken and disentegrated.

It required three different efforts to secure the correct part, but once the right one came, it required no more than removing the old bucket and replacing it with the new one, which is now working perfectly.

Just as described in earlier reviews, this was the filter housing unit and not the double water valve. To determine which part is failing bypass the water filter unit by disconnecting both water lines and connecting the fresh water line directly to the water valve. If this solves the problem, then you know for sure the filter housing is the problem. The filter housing has a very small tab that pushes open a rubber flap valve when a filter is installed. This allow you to remove the filter without turning off the water supply. Apparently only a very small amount of wear prevents the flap valve from opening fully and allowing water to flow. A small amount of water flow may be evident with the water dispenser but the ice maker will keep working until flow is completely interrupted. Easy fix.

Water filter and ice maker were not working--needed new filter housing

Turn off the cold water at the source. Remove metal plate from back of refrigerator at the top. Disconnect the two tubes that feed the water to the filter at the bottom of the back (behind the cardboard), noting which line takes the "blue" tube. On the inside of the refrigerator, pop off the top of the filter housing and set aside. Unscrew the two screws holding the filter assembly from the inside and pull the old assembly through.. Remove the plastic stopper (unless you are not using a filter) from the new assembly.Thread the new assembly tubes from the inside to the outside and reconnect screws and replace top of filter housing. Connect the new tubes to the water supply and to the refrigerator and tighten the nuts. Replace the metal plate and screws over the black insulated part at the top. Turn on the water and check for leaks. Replace the water filter..If a 68 year old grandmother can do it, so can you.

Used small screw driver to pry the top of the switch away from left inside wall of freezer side of side-by-side refrig./freezer; then used pliers to remove the switch; then removed the 3 prong socket and plugged it to new switch and installed it into the inside wall of the freezer.
